Add Anthony Mackie to the list of people cold on next year's Super Bowl at the home stadium of New York's teams.
Though the "Gangster Squad" actor now lives in Brooklyn, N.Y., he's from New Orleans and thinks a city like his hometown should get the Super Bowl every year.
Mackie said Friday night at an ESPN Magazine party that he doesn't want to sit outside in 30 degree weather and watch the Super Bowl.
"I want to see the girls in their pretty dresses; I want to hang out with the players. I don't want to be outside in the cold in New Jersey," he continued, stressing that Met Life Stadium, where both the New York Giants and Jets play, is actually in East Rutherford, N.J. "You're not in New York. I have to take a bus from Manhattan all the way to Jersey?"
Though Mackie's Saints didn't make it to the Super Bowl this year, Mackie is still passionate about who he wants to win — the Baltimore Ravens.
"I will do everything to not see San Francisco win another Super Bowl," he said, hoping for a bit of karma.
